Pipe Cleaners & Ornaments

As my son played with his Christmas sensory box, I watched him try to stuff a piece of shredded wrapping paper into an ornament. An idea suddenly occurred to me! I quickly grabbed a couple of pipe cleaners, cut them in half so they would be a little easier to manipulate, and showed Baby Bear how to put a pipe cleaner in the tiny ornament hole. It was such a simple idea, but my son thought it was great! He sat and played with them for quite some time. It was great for his fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, too!
